Hello All !
I have just a couple of questions for those familiar with the Celestron CO-62.
1) Does anyone know for sure which direction to turn the objective lens Retaining Ring to remove the lens ? I did put a loupe to the threads and determined the ring has to be turned COUNTERCLOCKWISE to LOOSEN it. But I just really needed to be sure to avoid/minimize any possibility of ruining the threads and/or the spanner jumping off and damaging the lens. 2) Is there any Set Screw on the retaining ring I need to take off first before turning the ring ? Again, I checked with a loupe, and saw no Set Screw, but just needed to be 110% sure that there wasn't any screw.
I apologize if i seem overly cautious , and realize that a lot of these Halley spotter scopes were made and sell for cheap (at least in the U.S.). But over here, it would pleasantly surprise me if I saw another one... Thank You. Patrick
